What People Say About Dr. Shabrez Tariq, MD

I have been a patient of Dr Tariq nearly 3 years. He’s a very caring and very compassionate doctor. Not one complaint ever, on either him or his awesome staff. Each one of his staff is very nice and caring. I would highly recommend him to anyone, which I have and will continue to do. My back is feeling so much better. Was nervous about having back surgery but after talking it over with Dr Tariq he made me feel so much better and not as scared to do what I know I needed, have back surgery,

I am so grateful that I found Dr. Tariq!!! I was in a car accident in September of 2018. As a result of the accident, I had pain in my neck, shoulders and all down my back and was tired of popping pills that weren't helping. Dr. Tariq was very empathetic of my situation. Not once did he push injections on me. I actually asked for them, in order to get some relief from pain and some range of motion back! The wait time in the office varies based on the location and the time of day.

I was involved in a car accident and since I was hit by the air bags which deployed-sudden neck movement back and forth lead to severe neck pain. I was looking for a pain specialist who has experience in treating musculoskeletal injuries and one of my cousin had seen Dr.Tariq earlier so I went to see him. He explained me the mechanism of injury in detail and cause of my neck pain and headaches. He treated me with therapy and injections. Best pain doctor in houston both me and my cousin agree.

Never sent new patient paperwork ahead of time despite requests. Poor communication. Rude and incompetent people at the front desk. Spent 45 minutes behind the closed glass discussing lunch order while patients arrived and signed in.... waited over an hour to even get paperwork, other patients complained about similar wait times. Very rude and ignore patients regularly. Placed in a room after being shuttled back and forth only to have a random other person enter— not the doctor. Will not return

I have been a patient of Dr. Tariq for 6 years. We have a great doctor patient relationship. He always try to find the best solution to your pain to help you have a normal life and being as pain free as possible. He’s a caring and understanding physician. His staff has the same professionalism as he does. If you have a problem they will try their best to fix it. I couldn’t find another doctor as good as Dr. Tariq and his staff.

I have been seeing Dr Tariq for years - first for my back, then my knee, and then my shoulder - now he treats all 3.He adjusted my medication from my other doctor and made it more effective all the while keeping in mind that I wanted to reduce the amount of narcotics I was taking. He has given me effective injections in all 3 areas with minimal discomfort. He is kind, efficient, caring and thorough. His office staff led by Sophie are just as amazing. I recommend him highly.

I never write reviews, especially about doctors ...However Dr Tariq is a delightful surprise...I’ve been seeing him now for about three years I guess. He is a very professional and personable doctor he takes his job very seriously but still finds time to talk to his patients on both levels. (If you have ever been to a PM Dr you already feel uncomfortable as well as in pain and the prospect of feeling like you did something wrong. I’ve never felt that..with the injections coupled with the meds

I have been going to Dr. Tariq for about 5 years. I have been in the medical field for about 35 yrs. and I have to say he is the most compassionate and knowledgeable. doctor that I had the privilege to call my doc. He is very interested and concerned regarding my treatment and he asks questions that are very pertinent to my issues. Giving him a 5 star rating is not enough. Just want to say " thank you, Dr. Tariq" for all your concern and treatment.

Never does nothing but push getting shots no matter if there good for you are not. He is all about the money not truly care or emphasize with the patent. General he sucks.

This doctor is not only unfriendly, but he simply doesn't provide enough knowledge or skill to treat people properly for pain. Out of the many years I've been treated for pain, going to Dr. Shabriz has been the worst experience and I don't re recommend him. He also does not have a office of his own and you have to travel to pretty far to see him.

It was my first visit yesterday. I got there 15 minutes early for my appt. I filled out paperwork. Had to wait for receptionist to finish her texting. When she looked up from her phone, she informed me, my appt., was for an hour and a half later. I had even confirmed my time earlier in the day. After over two hours later, people going ahead of me, I left. If I am at a pain management doctor, I'm in PAIN! They ask on the paperwork, if you can sit more than 30 minutes. You better hope you can!
